Charmed actress Rose McGowan is making her directorial debut with the short film Dawn. Set in America’s Kennedy-era 1960s, Dawn is about a sheltered teenager named Dawn (Tara Barr) who looks to gas station attendant Charlie (Reiley McClendon) for adventure.
McGowan told The Hollywood Reporter that Dawn was inspired by “the look of the original Parent Trap, the tension of Night of the Hunter, and the loneliness of an Edward Hopper painting.” McGowan hopes the 17-minute film is nominated for an Academy Award but that doesn't mean she's giving up on acting. With Peter Bogdanovich, McGowan is starring in an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart which will appear later this year.
